    Black Willow Live Stakes – Salix Nigra

    Black Willow Live Stakes trees grow quickly and can be more than 100 feet high and 30 feet in diameter when full grown. Most of these trees are between 30 and 70 feet high but they will grow more than three feet a year. The trees have branches that grow from its base giving it the appearance of several trunks and adding plenty of shade and unique beauty.

    Also called the swamp willow, this tree uses a lot of water and grows in areas where there are ready sources such as along the Mississippi River Valley, the Atlantic Coast, Gulf coast, and as far north as Canada. The tree grows in the mid-west and in many parts of the eastern US. It does very well in soil that does not drain well. 

    The foliage of this species is a dark green and the tree does produce a small fruit about the size of a capsule. When the tree flowers the blooms are yellow and are called catkins. The leaves of the Black Willow Live Stakes are slim and about four inches in length with edges that are serrated. The fruit is either yellow or a combination of red and brown in color and has small hairy seeds that are green. The tree itself has small almost black colored needles thus the name Black Willow. 

    As a beautiful addition to landscaping and property these trees provide shelter as well as food for wildlife. They are quite resistant to disease and damage from insects. Black Willow Live Stakes are often used to help stop erosion in landscapes due to their root system which is quite complex. It is this system that helps to stabilize the land by using the water. They are great for planting on land that tends to stay wet. This species of Willow is a beautiful addition to the landscape adding charm and curb appeal.
